ABOUT THE AWARD
The Diana Jones Committee is a mostly anonymous group of games-industry alumni and illuminati, known to include designers, publishers, cartoonists, consultants, and some content to rest on their laurels.
Past winners include industry figures such as Peter Adkison and Jordan Weisman, the role-playing games Nobilis, Sorcerer, and Fiasco, the board-games Dominion and Ticket to Ride, and the website BoardGameGeek.
Last year's winner was Wil Wheaton's webseries Tabletop. This is the fourteenth year of the Award.
Special thanks to the sponsors of this year's Diana Jones Award ceremony, who will be announced shortly.
